“Indeed.” Lyn nodded. “The earlier you start training in an advanced meditation technique, the more eminent the technique’s features will be to others. The lava ball on my palm is of the ability I acquired when I completely mastered the third stage and is called ‘Lava Rain’. Once I throw this ball in the location I designate and make it explode, it will then cause the descent of a rain of lava—it is great for large-scale wars. The power of this ability is dependent on the caster’s mentality level. If the caster has high enough mentality, then they can even double or triple this ability’s base damage.”
Lyn explained as the lava ball disappeared from her hands. “And there is one benefit to it. You do not have to search for the best spell you can obtain when you rank up.”
“Sounds good.” Angele nodded. “That should be the reason wizard organizations in the central continent were founded with complete copies of advanced meditation techniques.”
“With the assistance of an advanced meditation technique, we can easily cast spells that suit our rank. It is every wizard’s dream,” Lyn added.
She stopped for a second and continued, “You can use it to improve your Talent Spells, too—just focus on manipulating the energy flow. This is the method the majority of wizards would choose. Simply speaking, you can instantly cast multiple Talent Spells while your opponent is still preparing to cast their first spell. This sounds too simple, but it is truly effective in certain situations.”
“All right, I understand.” There were blue dots of light flickering in front of Angele’s eyes. “Thank you for the detailed explanation. You may leave now. I will find the method most suitable for me.”
“Very well.” Bowing slightly, Lyn stepped out of the wooden shelter.
Angele, who remained alone inside, then took out a small red box from his pouch.
It was a half-moon-shaped wooden box with silver engravings on its surface.
Angele opened the box which revealed a blackish red stone inside. It had a smooth texture similar to that of a jade stone.
He took it out and carefully inspected it several times.
‘So this is an Earth Fire Stone. Zero, inspect its energy structure,’ he ordered.
A glowing light with the shade of blue surrounded Angele’s eyes and illuminated on the stone in the box. It took about ten seconds for the biochip to finish the process.
Angele felt a tad surprised after seeing the result.
‘It is actually a high-quality fire energy stone perfectly suitable for the Molten Core River technique…A stone like this can absorb Fire energy particles and store up to 100 degrees of energy. Vivian gave me the best material she had…’
‘An Earth Fire Stone like this one is the perfect for wizards training in the Molten Core River technique. There is no longer a point in me trying to search for substitutes.’ Angele was satisfied with the stone Vivian had gifted him and even felt relieved at the thought of not having to prepare anything for the third stage.
Although the power of this special ability would be akin to that of the other wizards who similarly trained in the Molten Core River technique, his main offensive skill remained to be the signet from the ancient bloodline. The power of the bloodline signet only lay in the source of the bloodline; his wizardry rank did not matter. The only difference it could make was that Angele would be able to extract stronger bloodlines if his mentality level was higher.
Ancient wizards had relied more on bloodlines, while modern wizards focused more on damage spells.
Yet Angele was attempting to improve bloodlines and damage spells both at the same time. The only problem was that no one had told him how to progress further through bloodlines. There was little or no information that had been left by the ancient wizards.
On the other hand, for the spells, he had the help coming from the wizardry books and Vivian.
Angele breathed deeply as he looked at the stone.
‘I should try mastering the third stage before the gate opens. Let me see just how hard it is to engrave the magic circle onto my mentality crystal.’
After calming himself down, he threw the stone into the air.
He then quickly drew a rune.
The stone was ignited floating in the air as it released countless heatwaves.
Angele’s expression soon turned serious. He raised his other hand and pointed at the stone.
While checking the magic circles recorded on the book, he started engraving the first portion of the magic circle.
Countless red lines appeared around the Earth Fire Stone and started drawing the first part of the magic circle.
Minutes and minutes passed. The lines were clear, and the completed magic circle surrounded the stone in the center.
Cold sweat was dripping down Angele’s chin. It seemed a lot of mentality was consumed during the process.
‘This is the first part…I’m not sure if my mentality is high enough for the whole process…’
Countless cracks appeared on the surface of the Earth Fire Stone.
All the flames, runes, and energy lines disappeared together. The Earth Fire Stone was no longer in the air, almost as if the stone had sublimated.
Angele was breathing heavily.
‘I thought the process was easy…The entire magic circle has three parts. I have only completed the first, and there are still the second and third parts. Good thing is, I have the biochip helping me do all the calculations. Other wizards might need several years before they could complete the entire magic circle, but I will only need about half a month to master the third stage.’
The engraving of magic circle was a critical step in the third stage of the Molten Core River technique. He could advance to the next rank after the process was completed. Not like using a potion, advancing using this method would not create too many impurities.
Angele noticed that his mentality level increased slightly after finishing engraving the first part. And with the help of Zero, he could find the best way to finish the engraving while not making any mistake.
‘Zero, create the task. Analyze the magic circles and compute my success rate of mastering the third stage,’ Angele commanded.
Angele had stopped at the Crystal stage for three years with his biggest achievement, removing the impurities from his mentality. It was about time for him to try to advance to the next rank.
‘Mission created. Analyzing…Estimated time: 12 hours,’ Zero reported back immediately.
Angele had high affinity with the Fire energy particles, so his progress with the Molten Core River technique was relatively fast.
Completing the third stage and advancing to the next rank was no longer a big problem to Angele. The biochip could finish most of the complicated calculations for him.
He wanted to meditate for a bit longer, but he heard the loud noise coming from outside.
“You finally came out…”
Angele’s brow furrowed as he stepped out of the wooden shelter.
A Watcher was about to enter the shelter, bowing immediately after seeing Angele.
“Master, the gate to the garden has finally opened!”
Angele nodded. “I know.” He raised his head and looked at the gate.
There were three wizards standing in front of the mirror-like gate.
There was one female wizard and two male wizards, all at about 15 years old. Their clothes were messy and there were scars on their faces.
The two male wizards were wearing black robes and the female wizard was wearing a white shirt, but they were all damaged.
The three was surrounded by the families and organizations. They looked a bit nervous, as it seemed like they were trying to return to their own families.
Angele noticed that the three teenagers’ bodies were translucent for some reason.
A ray of blue light pierced through a translucent male wizard’s head, but nothing happened.
The man was startled due to this and retreated immediately but he looked confused.
A blue robe behind Unos lowered his hand and scrunched his eyebrows. “Master, they are illusions. We cannot attack them.”
“Is that so?” Unos narrowed his eyes.
A middle-aged woman from the Morgan Family saw the scene and was enraged. She was stopped by the other family members, but she was still cursing. It took her several minutes to calm down.
“Mother!” The man that was hit by the red light stepped forward and looked at the middle-aged woman.
“Mother! I’m here!” He looked excited.
“Wait, Henry!” The other male wizard stopped him. “Something isn’t right.”
“Master Kita!” The members of the Spender Family shouted together.
Kita turned around and saw the members of his family waving their hands.
“Master Kita, are you in the Foreseer Form?” Gill questioned carefully.
Kita looked surprised after hearing the name. “How did you know about the Foreseer Form?”
He realized that the elders knew a lot about the garden and calmed down several seconds later.
Kita nodded slightly. “You’re right. We’re in the Foreseer Form right now but we don’t know how this happened.”
“Wait, the foreseer state? You can give access to the ones that want to enter the garden now?” Unos suddenly questioned.
“Alright, just give access to us!”
“No, pick the Philip Family, please!”
“Susana! You’re a good kid, and you should give access to your brother Marino!”
Several members of the three families shouted. The elders and leaders did not say anything. They were the relatives of the three wizards that were in the Foreseer Form.
“Mother…?” The female wizard named Susana hesitated. She looked around and saw a beautiful woman saying something to her. Her expression changed and there were tears in her eyes. “Mother, why are you here? Alright, I will give access to…”
“Wait, Susana!” Kita suddenly interrupted in a deep voice.
“What happened? Kita?” Susana wiped the tears off from her eyes, looking confused.
“Wait a second. It seems like we’re in trouble,” Kita whispered to her ears.
“Kita, we can give the access to two people, and I want to give my mother one. That shouldn’t be a problem, right?” Henry pursed his lips. “She has treated you well, you know that.” He looked a bit disappointed.
“Think about it. We can give two people access to the garden but there are three families here. We need to proceed with caution.”
Henry and Susana were young, but they quickly realized how complicated the situation was.
“What should we do then?” Susana and Henry looked at Kita.
“Let’s find out what’s going on first,” Kita replied in a low voice.
